Updated over a week ago

If you're looking to streamline your planning process, I've got a nifty little trick that will save you time and clicks. This shortcut is particularly useful when you're in the thick of timeline adjustments and need to make bulk edits to your times. Let me share with you one of my go-to hacks that I often highlight in demos, which I think everyone should know.

The Time-Saving Shortcut for Bulk Edits

Here's how to quickly select multiple timeline items:

  1. Start at Your Timeline: Open up the timeline you’re working on.

  2. Initiate Bulk Selection: Identify the time span you want to edit, such as all morning events.

  3. Use the Shift Key: Click the checkbox for the first event, press and hold the 'Shift' key on your keyboard, then click the checkbox for the last event in your desired range.

  4. Instant Selection: Like magic, all the boxes in between will be selected.

Why Use This Hack?

  • Efficiency: It significantly cuts down the time you’d spend individually selecting each entry.

  • Convenience: This trick is handy for shifting several parts of your event schedule simultaneously.

  • Accuracy: Bulk editing reduces the chance of missing an entry when you're moving things around.

Putting It into Practice

Next time you find yourself needing to adjust multiple timeline items:

  • Remember this shortcut: It’s all about working smarter, not harder.

  • Apply to Various Edits: Whether you're moving a block of time or applying a specific note to several entries, this trick comes in handy.
